1) Our Spot
We enjoyed a hearty and inexpensive breakfast here the other day. They have a pretty straightforward breakfast and lunch menu. A basic breakfast comes in around $5 and the potato omelette around $8. You can add ham, sausage, etc. at an additional cost. Try their lima beans, an option included with the basic breakfast. This place is one of our favs, the staff and service are great!
180 Baldwin Street, Kensington Market
2) Grenadier Cafe
Breakfast at High Park! This place is so convenient especially after a run or cherry blossom viewing. They have a to-go cafeteria, a sit-in area and a patio. Friendly staff, speedy service and atmosphere. The standard option: 3 Egg Cheese Omelette with Home Fries and Toast is $4.99. We went with the traditional breakfast – 3 eggs, sausage, hash and toast for $6.99. Coffee is $2.49 with free refills. A great place for families and kids.

3) Lunch Box
Upon walking in we were immediately greeted by the super friendly staff, who helped navigate us through the menu options. We tried the Avocado Brie Tomato Sandwich ($5.95), which was put together on the spot with lots of care and attention. The restaurant has a super homey ambiance. Definitely worth a visit!

4) Mutual Street Deli
Even if you’re not a Ryerson student this place should be a go-to hangout for you. The decor “gosh-darn” cute and service is great. The standard options; pita veggie omelette is $5 and bacon and egg combos go for $5.75. Almost all meals are under $10 and there are daily specials. Lots of selection for families with kids as well.

5) UFO Restaurant
The standard 2 egg breakfasts are $5.95. The homemade burger with fries is an absolute must – and it’s only $6 for a mammoth burger!! Great little underrated local joint. The setup is fairly basic but this is definitely a little hidden gem that has food at a reasonable prices in the Bellwoods area.
